Every girl needs a boyfriend shirt in their catalogue of clothes. It is an essential staple item and something you can throw on and really never go wrong with. They are comfortable and stylish which makes for a winning combo in my books. This shirt is from the new Gant Rugged collection and it’s gone straight to the top of my favourites out of the many many striped shirts I own. It’s a really breathable material and the oversized fit gives you a cool boyish edge which I have given a girly twist here by wearing a lacey peach harness bra underneath.

Not to be totally British or anything but what is with this weather at the moment?! It’s so erratic which makes dressing to leave the house a bit of a guessing game. We have had a few pleasant days and digging out the sunnies has made me extremely happy and oh so ready for summer to get it’s butt here pronto. From someone that lived in Greece for 6 years and wearing them every day without fail I sure have missed them. I treated myself recently to this rose tinted pair of beauties from Ray Ban (via ASOS).

You will have probably seen harness bralets all over the high street lately. I have been looking for some cute ones but they seem to be constantly sold out! I did manage to nab this one though and it’s a winner. It’s a bit more 50 shades than most of the more simple versions I’ve seen around but sometimes you’ve just got to bring your inner prowess out. It is actually shown online as more of a top to wear with skirts, high waist jeans etc but unless I have abs like Jenna Dewan-Tatum in the next two months then that won’t be happening!

Lace ups are everywhere right now and I have the standard bodysuits with long and short sleeves but then I spotted this cute lace up sweater and loved how the trend had gone into winter territory. I initially wanted the rust version but it sold out and much to my disappointment never got restocked *sob*. I did manage to get my hands on this gorgeous go-with-everything cream version though so all was not lost.

Sorry about the quiet spell this week, I have been soooo busy and not been able to get any photos done the rubbish weather really hasn’t helped either. I can only take photos on weekends and when it rains all day then I am a bit stuck. I will try and get a few outfits done this weekend so that it doesn’t happen again! (please pray for no rain) I did shoot this simple uber-casual look last week though.

The bomber loving goes on and on, this time in a go-with-everything faux suede tan. This is a little different to my previously featured bomber jackets, it is a lot thinner and more lightweight than the others and is more of a cover up and part of the outfit than outerwear as such. I probably wouldn’t take this one off as it’s no different to wearing a cardigan or a shirt over a top. I quite like that this is more lightweight and less ‘coat like’, it makes a nice change to a big padded bomber and keeps an otherwise plain outfit on trend.

This bomber though guys!! I have a bit of a bomber love-in going on so been wearing them constantly at the moment, meaning they are showing up in every post. This beautiful floral embroidered one is what dreams are made of. It’s a nice thick material and something a little different to the usual satin style you see everywhere and what I usually wear. It jazzes up a plain-ish outfit and injects a little colour and fun into the mix.

I am a big big fan of the plunge neck, whether it be bodysuits, dresses or playsuits I think they look amazing. This was a quick look put together to show that for a big night out you don’t always need to get completely galmmed up to the max by going all out in a dress but you can still looks just as dressy in a plunge bodysuit, jeans and heels. Especially whent he weather is as icy cold as it is now, putting on a dress and facing the elements isn’t the most appealing idea in the world Bodysuits always look good and there are so many different styles on the market at the moment, you are sure to find one you like. It doesn’t have to be a plunge style either, this is just something I like at the moment.
